that obama had a bad debate, didn't do what he was supposed to do but mr. romney lied. >> bill: you are absolutely right. again, i compared romney's debate performance to the ryan speech in tampa. it was a good performance but it was packed with lies. i think the entire media was focusing on stage craft and performance or entertainment or acting ability and not on the substance of what they said. on the substance of what he said mitt romney simply did not tell the truth about the $5 million, about health care, about a whole lot of stuff. kevin in chicago, kevin getting rid of big bird good idea? >> caller: yeah, my granddaughter is four years old, so i'm ul up to speed on big bird. and it brings back memories of when my kids were young. >> bill: same here. >> caller: it is just an example of the crap that comes out of his mouth. they don't realize the value of putting something on tv for the kids to watch -- >> bill: and learn, yeah. >> caller: and the whole industry that has spawned off of it of the kids toy, and everything -- >> bill: you got it. big bird is a

tonight will the moderator of the presidential debate will ask mr. romney about the 47 comment. will they ask about this particular video that shows then senator obama showing that the neglect of new orleans was racial. >> down in new orleans, where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later. there is a federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the staford act and when you get federal matter you have to give a 10 percent match from the local government. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the staford act. they said this is too serious of a problem and we can't expect new york city to lebuild on its own. forget that dollar. that was the right thing to do. what is happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? where is your staford act money? it makes no sense. trust me, the bullet hasn't been taken out. it tells me that the people down in new orleans doesn't care as much. >> steve: you can see it in the entirity in the daily he said the people of new orleans got the shaft and people who suffered from 9/11 or
romney, all part of the preparations for the first debate . in a few hours it will be the real thing and it is live in denver. >> security preparation is at the highest level in denver as the president and the man who hopes to take his job will be in the same room at the same time. something that rarely ever happens. we can show you inside of the university of denver. things are coming along as the staff set the stage for the event. the cand dates are expected to have walk throughs later on today. governor romney took to practicing with ohio senator rob portman. they stopped by chipolte for lunch. his opponents was at the hoover dam. he's been in a debate camp with john kerry. one thing to consider as we head in tonight. early voting is underway in some states and that raises the stakes. >> the first debate is a huge deal . some people can go out and vote the next day. in colorado, people can vote the next week before the other debates even occurred. if there is an immediate affect you will see it in the ballot box. >> the debate gets underway 9:00 eastern time . 7:00 denver time. >>
the challenge mitt romney faces against president obama, the clearest shift from the debates came in the 2000 race pitting governor george w. bush of texas against vice president al gore. it resulted from a rare combination of factors with demonstrating effects on mr. gore's campaign. and i guess the question is, can mitt romney pull something that would really kind of just give people a page-turner on, a, his personality, which he doesn't appear to really have one beyond being a really nice person. no, i'm serious. he has to show empathy and sympathy and a connection with people that he hasn't up until now. or, steve rattner, to be more specific about his policies, which many argue he hasn't been very specific nor paul ryan. >> he hasn't been very specific. but i think his bigger problem is the first one you said. that he's got to create some sense of connectivity or relationship with the voters. i think that's really his goal as well as what we were talking about in the earlier segment of trying to bring a clear depiction of obama's policies and the fact they haven't done everything they we
as romney explained very clearly in the debate the other night, no, i am not cutting taxes on the richest. what i want to do is lower rates overall by 20%. and eliminate loopholes, deductions, exemptions, that sort of thing. which i think all serious people who look at the tax code think needs to be done. it's the richest of all by the way who take the most advantage of tax deductions. that is a fairer way of looking at t maybe if you have a lot of deductions you don't want to get rid of them. but you always feel like with reductions, somebody else is getting a better deal than you are. mitt romney hasn't specified which deductions. i can think of a few we should get rid of like deductions for state and local taxes. why should the rest of the country be supporting the high tax rates of california and new york? but anyway, that's my position, not mitt romney's and he also explained in the debate, this is my general proposal. we'll argue about it. we'll talk about it. i'll take it to the democrats and we'll work it out. but even the tax policy center that claims this would be a $5 trillion
and romney are arguing over who is going to spend more money on medicare would need to have a reading debate and discussion on this country on how we slash medicare spending because if we do not, i believe we will find ourselves in the midst of a monetary collapsed as a result of continuing to borrow and spend money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar we spend. host: so what do you see on that particular issue? what is your prescription? pardon the expression. >> i oversaw the or form of medicaid in the mexico when i was governor of new mexico. we ticket from a fee-for- service model to a managed-care model. we saved hundreds of millions of dollars, set up better health care networks for the poor. i believe if the federal government would have a lot granted the state of new mexico 43% less money, and done away with all the strings and the mandate, i could've effectively oversee the delivery of health care to the fore. i think you apply that same template to medicare, health care for those over 65, get the federal government out of the health-care business completely , give it up to t
. connell: there have been a bunch of articles that these debates don't always change things and mitt romney has to hope that the polls are not what they are. neil: we discussed this last week. a call among all of the -- polling groups gathering in a room -- we try to stick it to mitt romney. there might be a statistical quirk that favors democrats because of the sampling in 2008. it is outside the margin of error. why i they so close? i know that stuff like you do. in these swing states, ken-4 and from 6 to 3. don't hold me to that the states are swinging differently. they are tightening up which is the nature of the beast. everyone talks about the undecided voters. i think it is about winning over those who made up their minds. a lot of nixon's supporters in 1960 were so impressed with this young jack kennedy that they said he didn't sweat. seems pretty cool. seems ok and lot of people had problems with george bush but against john kerry they thought he seems arrogant and frankenstein, i will go to george bush. they can change your established based too and if the other guy does such a gre
